Young Buddhists: The Direct Path to Awakening

Mon 3rd Jun : 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Man meditating

This evening will be led by Tom, and will focus on the Mindfulness of Breathing meditation practice. Tom says:

I love to meditate. I first came along to Manchester Buddhist Centre many years ago seeking further instruction in mediation. This is true for many other young people that come along to the Buddhist Centre. Many of us begin our journeys with a meditation app, and after discovering the vast and joyful internal world waiting for us we dive enthusiastically into exploring it more fully and making it an important part of our day to day lives.

In this session we will explore together the practice of the Mindfulness of Breathing. The Buddha said that the Mindfulness of Breathing, if practised consistently, can help us to become kinder and wiser, overcome grief and sorrow, and grow radically towards realising Enlightenment-the ending of all suffering.

Join us for an opportunity to delve into the wonders of awareness alongside other likeminded people.

About the Young Buddhists Group

We're a friendly informal group led by young people for young people, open to anyone aged 18 - 30 interested in exploring and practising Buddhism with other younger people. We meet on the first and third Monday evening of the month. Interested? Just come along to one of our meetings or get in touch with us through the Centre. We also have a Manchester Young Buddhists Group on Facebook.

There's no need to book. We gather together in the Buddhist Centre lounge about thirty minutes before the start of the session and sometimes hang out together afterwards. It'll be great to have you with us!
